Archbishop Chaput creates ‘quasi-parish’ for Traditional Mass

Source:wikicommons 

From the Catholic Herald:-


"Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia has created a new ‘quasi-parish’ for Catholics interested in the Traditional Latin Mass.

From August 1, the former St Mary parish in Conshohocken – which was subject to a merger in 2014 – will be handed to the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP). Under canon law, a quasi-parish is equivalent to a full parish but with certain exceptions. If the venture is deemed a success, Archbishop Chaput can turn it into a permanent parish.

“In response to a growing interest, it has become timely to provide additional pastoral care for those wishing to participate in Divine Worship in the Extraordinary Form,” Archbishop Chaput said.

“While it remains to be seen if this community will flourish so as to become a parish, the establishment of a quasi-parish to provide this spiritual care appears to be most fitting at this time,” he added."
